I meant "Will we make it" as more of a "could we survive in such conditions". Let's say everyone were to lose their thumb and anything using any sort of energy becomes disabled (steam/electric etcetera), rendering us unable to use 99% of the technology we possess. Can we survive?
EDIT: I chose the thumb because as the opposable digit, it is one of the main components for gripping things: vital for using most tools well.
